As per a latest report from MacRumours, Apple’s 2021 range of iPhones will continue the fine work from last year. The tech giant is tipped to bring more advancements to the camera department. The upcoming iPhone 13 series is likely to receive an advanced ultra-wide and telephoto camera. According to the report from MacRumours, the upgrades are not likely to be as aggressive as previously thought. However, they are still quite fascinating. Going by the report, as compared to /2.4 on iPhone 12 models, all four iPhone 13 models are likely to feature an upgraded Ultra-Wide camera lens with a wider /1.8 aperture.
The report is in contrast with what was predicted by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Previously, he had claimed the Ultra-Wide lens will be upgraded to an /1.8 aperture only on iPhone 13 Pro models. However, the new report confirms the presence of the stated lens on the entire iPhone 13 line-up. This will offer a lot of cheer to Apple fans as the presence of a wider aperture would allow for more light to pass through the lens. This will allow the iPhone 13 phones to offer remarkably improved low-light performance when shooting in Ultra-Wide mode.
Not only this, the new report from MacRumours also claims that the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s upgraded Telephoto lens will expand to the iPhone 13 Pro. Nevertheless, in place of the 52mm focal length, the iPhone 13 Pro Max will bring an f/2.2, 65mm focal length lens. This is an attempt to further push the zoom capabilities of the phone to 2.5x optical — as compared to 2x on the iPhone 12 Pro.
